I just saw this at a university screening. After reading the reviews here, I wanted to add my response, too.
I thought this film was really moving. I think it goes a little way toward helping a viewer recognize the wild grip he or she places on things or expectations, and what's more amazing is that the logic of the film allows it to do this almost solely through humor and with a light touch. Many moments in the film are not that far from Gogol's Dead Souls or Tati's Hulot in their liveliness and scope.
At the very least, I'd recommend it to a friend--a thoughtful and surprising film.
